Retire old man. Kind of a jack of all trades.

    What do you mean?

    OK, I see what you mean. I couldn't download either so I just saved the web page.

    Thank you!

    What is the weight of the rider who tested the range and what was the cruising speed for the 40 mile range? While on the subject of speed, what is the top speed with that same rider?

    One thing really nice about other Instructables is folks without the skills and knowledge can take on the project because all of the details are included. But then, those authors are sharing their knowledge, not just trying to generate interest in a soon to be released book. Fortunately, for me, I have the needed skills and knowledge so I won't need to buy the book.

  • Building a Wood-Framed Panelized Yurt

    Why not include a list of materials, plans, dimensions, angles, detailed photos and comprehensive explanations/directions in order to make this a full blown instructable. As it stands, to me, it is really nothing more that a look what I built. It looks nice but I think very few people will be able to build one with these instructions

    Woodturning With a Bandsaw

    I have to agree and, because of that, I voted for you. Yes, you could have used the mini lathe, a tool designed for turning wood. In that case you would not have received my vote. I would have found that to be boring. Instead, you used your imagination and gave us a new use for an old tool. Thank you!

    Unusual Uses for Duct Tape

    Wasilla is kinda the gateway to the interior. Most people, particularly city folks, would see it as the last sign of civilization until you get up to Fairbanks. If you live in the interior of Alaska you can't just run to the corner store when something breaks. You have to be prepared to handle breakdowns/emergencies on your own. That means the smart folk have a supply of duct tape on hand and the Walmart in Wasilla is the place to get it.

    Unusual Uses for Duct Tape

    Here is a bit of duct tape trivia for you. The Walmart in Wasilla, Alaska, sells more duct tape than any other place in the world. Retail that is.
